Job Postings Jump 10% Past Seven Days – Postings Drop in Other NYS Markets

(Albany, NY, October 27, 2010) – Job postings increased by 10% this past seven days in the Capital Region, climbing to just over 6000, up from 5500 the week prior. This is welcome news for job seekers as the local job market appeared to be flat over the past several weeks. “During a period when we would normally see week-over-week increases in the number of job postings, we witnessed a flat and sometimes declining market recently. The Capital Region was the only market in NYS to show an increase the past seven days. We can hope this is the beginning of a positive trend”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie. Moran assists individuals in identifying new careers and also those in the midst of a job search and needing direction. His firm also tracks the job market on a regional and statewide basis.

While a smaller market, the Capital Region still outpaces other NYS markets (with the exception of metro NYC). This has been consistent for over two years.


Job postings in the Region are normally in the baseline of 4000 – 4900 on a weekly basis and 7-day rolling average, consistent for this area. Monitoring job postings is a leading indicator of hiring within the following 30-45 days. This methodology is utilized by reading research houses nationally and is employed in the Region by Moran’s firm. For the purpose of reporting, the Region is defined as a 50 mile radius of Albany.
